Fundraising event guidance

A useful guide of things to consider if you are organising a fundraising event for the CBF.

A Trustee or staff representative will be present at major events and other local events wherever possible. When there is no one from CBF present the following guidelines should be used.

Tell us the event is happening

If you are holding a fundraising event for CBF let us know, we may be able to put you in touch with an experienced volunteer who can give tips about running a fundraising event. We can also advertise the event for you and provide you with CBF information for your event and advise you if a license is needed.

Keep yourself and the people attending the event safe*

Make sure the event you are running is covered by insurance. You may be able to use CBF insurance, but you will need to check with us first.

Carrying out a risk assessment before the event will help prevent any accidents. We can provide you with a simple, user friendly template when you contact us to tell us about your event.

If you are running a large event it may be necessary to provide first aid facilities. St John’s Ambulance or Red Cross will be able to provide advice.

If you are providing food at your event please follow good food hygiene procedures and comply with food safety laws and regulations, which are mostly common sense steps to make sure the food provided is safe.

Handling cash donations

Any funds you raise on behalf of Challenging Behaviour Foundation belong to the Foundation and we ask that you bank your donations as soon as possible. If you are dealing with large amounts of cash there should be two people responsible for counting money after the event. In the unlikely event that you raise sponsorship for an event that doesn’t go ahead you should offer donations back to the person/s who donated them.

Protecting the Challenging Behaviour Foundation

We are very grateful to you for running an event to raise money for the CBF. However, we do ask that you don’t do anything that could potentially harm the CBF’s reputation, jeopardise its ability to carry out its daily work or put at risk its charitable funds. If you are in any doubt please do contact us and we will be happy to help you plan your event.
